Please note: if you're supplying us with goods and services for which we have a separate contract, this must be signed by an appropriate person.

The only way to be sure that you have the appropriate authority to provide goods or services to the charity is if you receive a purchase order directly from our system. If you don't have this purchse order, you're at risk of not being paid.
